This was also true of stuff on their 1960s  budget label Metro. I had 
a copy of This Is Where It Started - Beatles & Tony Sheridan that 
sounded like was pressed on a shingle and mastered with a roofing 
nail! It made the stuff by 'the Beatles' so called guests The Titans' 
-- (who?) -- sound even worse than it really was!

The 70s resurrection of Lion was much better, that is if you can call 
an lp by Danny Bonaduce 'better'
